Slowing down and appreciating the simple things has been important this year, so I decided to design something representative of my surroundings close to home. Just down the street, there is a beautiful house with wrought iron cresting along the roof, and Alden is my knitted rendition of it. The name Alden means wise friend.

This pullover starts from the top down and is worked seamlessly and in the round. Options for a ribbed or simple, slightly rolled neckline are included. Short rows are worked to shape the neckline, then the colorwork yoke is worked. Options and instructions for a 2 or 3 color yoke are provided. The body and sleeves are separated and worked from the top down and colorwork cuffs are finished with an applied icord. Alden is suitable for either fingering or sport weight yarn.
